2009 AAA TV Chart
Projected Air Date (#892)
Mexico: 06/14
US: 07/04

The theme of the night was referee incompetence. Okay, that happens a lot, but this time they were going some place with it.

El Brazo worked as ref for the opener, and missed an Abismo foul on Octagoncito. La Parkita argued it, and was beat up by Brazo, Guapito, and the Mini Vipers. Parkita was a sub for Mascara Sagrada, and was not among the minis when they all joined Los Chihuahueños del Mal, and Guapito declared he’d never be invited in the promotion after that.

In the second mach, Piero missed Billy give Aerostar a martinete. Aerostar was taken out, and 3 rudos beat 2 tecnicos.

Psycho Circus were more psycho than usual, ripping up Laredo and Super Crazy’s Crazy Boy’s mask. The beating continued after the pinfall, Tropicasas teased a DQ, and the clowns beat him up too. Piero ran out for what looked to be the (incredibly anti-climatic) end to the winning streak, but Hijo de Tirantes cut him off and declared the Psycho Circus the winners.

Hijo de Tirantes and Silver King helped the Legion win the semimain.

The billed teams broke down, as they usually do in relevos matches. Mesias was dumped, and Konnan & Silver King tried to pin Wagner, but the count was broken up by Joaquin Roldan. Having a whole show ruined by bad refereing is one thing, but having it cost the promotion at TripleMania is another. Roldan introduced a masked Cien Caras as the special referee for the TripleMania cage match. Konnan suspected it was a fake (or maybe a Jr.) and demanded the masked man unmask. It was Cien Caras underneath, surprise.

Next show is TripleMania. Next TV taping is not TripleMania, it’s a week from Wednesday in Ecatepec. Which reminds me that Kris had the Orizaba lineup and I spaced on putting it up. I guess that’s next.

Sunday Guadalajara, Coliseo, EAW

Waiting for AAA results, but the quick version is Cien Caras returned to AAA to be AAA ref for the cage match, balancing out Hijo de Tirantes. No one will see this episode before TripleMania, but they must’ve given some people a heads up; besides Box Y Lucha, Ovaciones had a story about it and there’s no way they would’ve covered a Pachuca show all on their own, or have gotten this news in the paper the next night, unless there was a tipoff.

CMLL (SUN) 06/07 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring, MT]
1) Puma King & Tiger KidMolotov & Trueno
2) Lady Apache, Sahori, ZeuxisLa Nazi, Magnifica, Princesa Blanca
3) Mascara Dorada, Stuka Jr., ValienteEuforia, Nosferatu, Virus
4) Atlantis, Dos Caras Jr., Ultimo GuerreroBlue Panther, Shocker, Volador Jr.
5) MisticoFelino

Mistico beat Felino clean. No one talks of any challenges after the match.

Lady Apache replaced Marcela and Princesa Blanca replaced Hiroka, and I’m not sure why they weren’t on this show originally since they’re feuding and all.

CMLL (SUN) 06/07 Arena Coliseo [CMLL, Ovaciones]
1) Apocalipsis & SkandaloPrincipe Valiente & Sensei
2) Dr. X, Hooligan, Loco MaxGuerrero Maya Jr., Hijo de Ultraman, Starman
3) Bam Bam, Mascarita Dorada, Pequeño OlímpicoPequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pequeño Warrior
4) Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr., Misterioso IIMaximo, Mictlan, Sagrado
5) Black Warrior, Naito, YujiroHector Garza, Hijo del Fantasma, La Mascara

Garza tried to sneak attack No Limit, but No Limit figured it was coming and sneaked back behind him. Ovaciones says Fantamsa and the rest of the crew won’t be back in Mexico until the 17th, so there goes the idea of doing the trios title match here next week. Still surprised they won’t  be doing anything special, but there was no direction here except for that trios title match.

Sagrado got strechered out of his match. The tecnicos in the second match lost in straight falls, and I’m still not sure if this is a new Ultraman. (I think – yes?) Skandalo filled in for Ramstein, who seems to miss a lot of shows for a guy who’s not on a lot of shows. Minis match was said to be really good.

EAW (SAT) 06/06 El Pinal, Teziutlan [LuchandoLibre]
1) Dinastia, Penumbra, Ragde b Black Fire, Drastik Boy, Pesdailla
2) Neursois, Startron, Toro b Cometa de Fuego, Dinamita Kid, Silver Dragon
3) Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan Jr. b Fantastik, Turbo, Voltaje
4) Ericka del Rico & John Scott b Derrick Nikerson & Girl Dynamite
5) Histeria & Psicosis II b Scorpio Jr. & Zumbido
6) El Alebrije, Intocable, La Park b Monsther, Pirata Morgan, Super Crazy

Scorpio turned on Zumbido to set up a feud. No date announced for the next show.

Box Y Lucha #2925 is a big preview of TripleMania. Magazine includes Mistico’s interview, or a new one. The new edition of Box Y Lucha TV is also up.

CMLL (MON) 06/08 Arena Puebla
1) Asturiano & SWAT vs Fuerza Chicana & Policeman
2) Astro Boy, Guerrero Maya Jr., Hijo de Ultraman vs Puma King, René Guajardo Jr., Tiger Kid
3) Bracito de Oro, Electrico, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito
4) La Sombra, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas
5) Atlantis, Misterioso II, Ultimo Guerrero vs Averno, Terrible, Texano Jr.

Misterioso seems to be picking up all of Rey Buc’s bookings.

Chela Salazar, Cien Caras, Fuerza Guerrera

Box Y Lucha has a great bio of Chela Salazar, who passed away on Saturday after a long battle with cancer in her neck and liver. She lived in the Chicago area the in recent years, and there was a nice tribute show for her last year. The cancer had surely taken a toll on her. She didn’t seem sick (Box Y Lucha says she’d been stable for one year), but you wouldn’t have known she was a former luchadora.

Chela’s career highlights included being the part of the first match in Arena Coliseo after the city’s ban on women’s wrestling was lifted (11/21/1986, teaming with Irma Aguila and Irma Gonzalez vs Mujer Salvaje, Martha Villalobos, and Yuma), and the first woman to lose her hair in Arena Mexico, losing to Pantera Surena on July 17, 1987.

Box Y Lucha says Cien Caras returned to AAA tonight, to join the AAA side against the Legion.

indy (FRI) 06/05 Coliseo Centenario de Torreon [DJ Spectro]
1) Sexy Libra & Sexy Piscis b Bella Rubi & Dulce Paola
2) Mr. Aguilita & Pequeño Halloween b Celestial & Konami
3) Lady Warrior & Mujer Demente b Flor Metalica & Lilly Fighter
4) X-Fly L Olimpico, Damian 666, Super Porky, Super Crazy, Mr. Aguila [mask, hair, cage]
5) Dr. Wagner Jr. DRAW el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, El Hijo Del Santo

DJ Spectro says 3,500. X-Fly’s lost his hair twice this year already (and probably would’ve lost a third if not for the flu canceling the Record show.) Olimpico gets credited with the win. Main event was a Mexican indy special: Perros’s guys attacked Wagner and Santo for the non-finish.

ESPN Deportes previews TripleMania.

In Ovaciones, Cibernetico promotes the Bizarros by talking about how Konnan should honor his retirement stip, and then taking about how he doesn’t want to talk about Konnan anymore.

Fuerza cuts a much better promo in this week’s SuperLuchas. He has five points to make, helpfully numbered:
1) Konnan pretends that Anotnio Pena was a father to him, but he stole AAA’s talent to go to Promo Azteca and the US, and burned an AAA title on TV.
2) Konnan lost a retirement match, is still wrestling, so his word is nothing
3) Konnan talked fans into giving him money for his kidney transplant because he was so ppor, and yet he’s getting money from his TNA settlement
4) Konnan casts doubt onto the character of Mistico, but has far more personal scandals, including accusing on Cien Caras stealing his wife
5) Everything Konnan has has been pure crap.

Fuerza says Konnan is a selfish liar who only cares about himself, but holds no respect for himself. Fuerza really needs to be on TV just to be cutting promos. Fuerza says Konnan is getting $500,000 from TNA, which can not possibly be true.

SuperLuchas also has Dr. X’s second “what do I need to do for CMLL to push me?” interview of the year. The answer does not appear to be “more complaining to the press”, sadly.

AAA looks back at Psycho Circus‘s debut (facing much the same team they’ll be facing at TripleMania, as well as Muerte Cibernetica and Konnan‘s return to AAA. A bunch of people on that show who are long gone, of course.

Ohtani’s Jacket writes about the Puebla local match and last week’s IWRG.

Segunda Caida puts El Hijo del Santo #16 in their top of 2008 list.

CMLL CAN52 #183 (05/23)

taped 05/16

You know, this is quicker when I don’t have to rip the video. Crazy, that.

– Flash ©, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Hooligan ©, Loco Max, Skandalo (pt 1, pt 2) – first was inspired mat work. I don’t know what got into them! Rest of the match brought down a bit by Cometa being hurt or just bad, but still has moments.

Somehow, Hooligan & Skandalo dress almost exactly alike here (more so with how dark this turned out to be on my TV) and I have no problem telling them apart, but Rey Cometa & Pegasso are dressed differently and I had to go back and fix typing the wrong name about four different times. I dunno, losing it.

I still think Skandalo should get an elephant gimmick. He could do big stomps, he could have tusks and gore people, Loco could ride his back to the ring, it’d be great.

Atlantis ©, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero vs Black Warrior, Terrible ©, Texano Jr. – for the time and the finish and the level, they did more than I expected. Happy with this.

Tentative plan is to go back and do the Marcela/Rosa match, then go back thru other late May stuff. I figure AAA will take an 1/6th the normal time to do and LATV will fail to air a new episode again, so maybe I’ll get thru a few these next week. Or maybe I’ll just play Final Fantasy 7. Tune and see!

Texano advances (!), IWRG results, next week’s lineups

CMLL (FRI) 06/05 Arena Mexico [Ovaciones, Box Y Lucha, Cesar, SuperLuchas]
1) Astro Boy & Bengala b Caligula & Messala
2) Amapola, La Nazi, Princesa Blanca b Dark Angel, Lluvia, Sahori

3) Heavy Metal, Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura b La Mascara, Metro, Sagrado
4) Black Warrior b Mascara Dorada [CMLL Universal, eightfinal]
5) Texano Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma [CMLL Universal, eightfinal]
6) Averno b Dragon Rojo Jr. [CMLL Universal, eightfinal]
7) La Sombra b Sangre Azteca [CMLL Universal, eightfinal]
8) Texano Jr. b Black Warrior [CMLL Universal, quarterfinal]
9) La Sombra b Averno [CMLL Universal, quarterfinal]
10) Texano Jr. b La Sombra [CMLL Universal, semifinal]
11) Hector Garza, Shocker, Volador Jr. DQ Dos Caras Jr., Naito, Yujiro

Surprise: Texano advances to the final. Not a surprise: no match over 5 minutes in the tournament. Texano beat everyone clean (though Warrior more wiped himself out on a missed dive than anything Texano did), and apparently his finish is the Tornado Texas.

No parnters facing partners, this time around.

Dos got desperate in the main event and fouled Shocker. That sets up a super libre (no DQ) match between the two.

Ovaciones says Star Fire replaced Marcela in the woman’s match, but Cesar and SuperLuchas both say it was Lluvia. Ovaciones says Marcela missed the match because she’ll be undergoing knee surgery today (actually, before the time you’ll have read this) – I hope they’re wrong there too, but they’re probably correct.

FWIW, the Universal championship sure looks like yet another belt, and not a one time tournament trophy.

Kcidis’ latest cartoon looks at the guys who won their way into this tournament.

IWRG (THU) 06/04 Arena Naucalpan [Al Filo del Ring]
1) Guizmo b Radamantis
2) Epidemia & Heavy Boy b Comando Negro & Goleador
3) Avisman, Fantasma de la Opera, Tetsuya Bushi b Diva Salvaje, Miss Gaviota, Pendulo
4) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Trauma I, Trauma II, Zatura
5) Fuerza Guerrera, Pirata Morgan, Ricky Cruzz b Angelico, Bobby Lee Jr., Scorpio Jr.

They’re building a feud between Ricky Cruzz and Angelico, though I don’t know if Cruzz is scheduled to be around long enough to pay that off. Zatura accidently hit one of the Traumas to cost his team the match, and the Traumas beat him up after.

Proyeccion Luchistica talks with Pirata Morgan about the Infernales.

Luchando Libre previews tonight’s final AAA taping before TripleMania.

WagnerMania has a two part interview with Psycho Clown.

DJ Spectro has photos of the new Santo exhibition.

CMLL (TUE) 06/09 Arena Mexico
1) Bengala & Principe Valiente vs Camorra & Cholo
2) Amapola, La Nazi, La Seductora vs Dark Angel, Estrella Magica, Sahori
3) Angel Azteca Jr., Angel de Oro, Angel de Plata vs Arkangel de la Muerte, Loco Max, Skandalo
4) Mascara Dorada, Metro, Mictlan vs Felino, Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr.
5) Blue Panther, Shocker, Toscano vs Naito, Ultimo Guerrero, Yujiro

Toscano’s return.

CMLL (FRI) 06/12 Arena Mexico
1) Mascarita Dorada, Pequeño Olímpico, Shockercito vs Pequeño Damian 666, Pequeño Warrior, Pierrothito
2) Maximo, Sagrado, Valiente vs Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura, Virus
3) Mistico vs Ultimo Guerrero, Hector Garza, Volador Jr., La Mascara, Negro Casas, Mephisto, Ephesto [CMLL UNIVERSAL, torneo]
4) Blue Panther, La Sombra, Toscano vs Atlantis, Black Warrior, Mr. Niebla
5) Shocker vs Dos Caras Jr.

Ultimo Guerrero vs Texano seems possible. Negro Casas vs Texano seems possible – more so than Texano vs La Mascara, actually. I think Mephisto and Ephesto can be ruled out. Main event is NOT listed as super libre.

Tickets are 1 peso ($.08 US) for any child with an adult. I’d bet on this show going quite long, and CMLL doing anything else they can think of to make sure you’re not interested in seeing another show the next day.

CMLL (SUN) 06/14 Arena Mexico
1) Starman & Trueno vs Artillero & Super Comando
2) Fabian el Gitano, Metalico, Tony Rivera vs Bronco III, Dr. X, Hooligan
3) Flash, Pegasso, Rey Cometa vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Vangelis
4) Blue Panther, Mictlan, Sagrado vs Ephesto, Heavy Metal, Lizmark Jr.
5) Averno, Mephisto, Texano Jr. vs Hector Garza, Mistico, Toscano

Fan appreciation show being the day after TripleMania is also no concidence. Is the (current) main event a hint as towards next week’s final? The Trios title match is not listed, yet.

AAA (WED) 07/01 Cancha German Evers
1) Shyru Dragon vs Mario Mora
2) Aerostar & Relampago vs Billy Boy & Kempo Dragon
3) Alex Koslov & Rocky Romero vs Alan Stone & Chris Stone
4) ?, Konnan, Teddy Hart vs Jack Evans, Marco Corleone, Mesias

This is the first show here since Konnan won control of the building. Interestingly, it’s being hyped as The Final Battle.

Legends show, Mexico lineup, SLP

AULL (WED) 06/03 Arena Lopez Mateos [DJ Spectro]
1) Epidemia & Epitafio b Mr. Potro & Yakuza
2) Esther Moreno & Rossy Moreno b La Diabolica & Vicky Carranza
3) el Signo & Negro Navarro DRAW Cachorro Mendoza & Ringo Mendoza
4) Hombre Bala, Pirata Morgan, Satanico b Enrique Vera, Villano III, Villano IV
5) Brazo de Oro, Brazo de Plata, Canek b Lizmark Sr., Mascara Ano 2000, Rayo de Jalisco Jr.

Over half full building. Hombre Bala replaced MS-1, who’s apparently not doing to well. Vera replaced Dos Caras. Build to a Rayo/Canek match in the main event.

Tonight’s lineup:

CMLL (FRI) 06/05 Arena Mexico
1) Astro Boy & Bengala vs Caligula & Messala
2) Dark Angel, Marcela, Sahori vs Amapola, La Nazi, Princesa Blanca
3) La Mascara, Metro, Sagrado vs Heavy Metal, Misterioso II, Shigeo Okumura
4) Averno vs La Sombra, Sangre Azteca, Hijo del Fantasma, Dragon Rojo Jr., Mascara Dorada, Black Warrior, Texano Jr. [CMLL UNIVERSAL, torneo]
5) Hector Garza, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Dos Caras Jr., Naito, Yujiro

Universal talks to 6 of the 8 guys (no Fantasma or Texano.) None of them say anything that interesting – they’d all like to win, no one’s giving away strategy, only Dorada dares to suggest who he’d like to face (Negro or UG.) Ovaciones rates each competitor. They like Black Warrior as the favorite, have Sombra with a title he doesn’t actually have (read the wiki closer!) and see Dorada as the biggest underdog.

Main event continues Shocker (Hector)/Dos. Not a whole lot else here. Maybe they’ll tease Dark Angel/Amapola? Nah.

Luchando Libre looks at the possibilities of El Hijo del Santo and AAA working together.

There’s post on el Martinete saying the local advertising for the 06/20 AAA taping has Mesias vs Wagner [non title] and Teddy Hart vs Jack Evans

Rey Bucanero, after five hours of surgery, complained to Box Y Lucha about the doctor stopping the match. I think the doctor might reply “you just had five hours of surgery.”

Blue Panther talks about acupuncture with Fuego en el Ring. He gives it credit for helping him stay in the ring.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

indy (WED) 06/17 Auditorio Miguel Barragan
1) Canek, Dr. Wagner Jr., Mascara Sagrada vs Damian 666, el Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Mr. Aguila

That’s interesting. Not just because it’s Wagner apparently taking more bookings after he started talking to AAA, but if Wagner wins the title at TripleMania, you’d figure he’d be in Ecatepec on the taping. Could be a change to come here, could be a sign. Dunno.

CMLL (WED) 07/01 Auditorio Migue Barragan
1) Dark Angel & Lady Apache vs Amapola & Princesa Sujei
2) Pegasso & Rey Cometa vs Dr. X & Skandalo
3) La Mascara & Maximo vs Black Warrior & Sangre Azteca
4) La Sombra, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs ?, Atlantis, Ultimo Guerrero

Fan appreciation show prices here too. Is this somehow working for them? I can’t see the math. Another show Rey’s probably missing.

previewing tonight’s tournament

Like I said on Saturday, there’s no real overwhelming favorite or impossible underdog in Block A. It would be a big surprise if Dragon Rojo or Mascara Dorada won, but it’s a exponentially more possible than when CMLL put guys like Loco Max and Stuka in the Leyenda de Plata two years ago.

Still, just to handicap the group for wagering purposes:

Strong Chances

  • Averno – besides being Averno, has the bonus of being an easy match up versus tecnicos and half the rudos
  • La Sombra – having him win this all would be a fine way to anger Mistico more

Outside Chances

  • Sangre Azteca – his hopes of getting that match with UG seems low, but it would make CMLL champ sense to make the guy with the two national championships beat all the world champs
  • Black Warrior – because he’s Black Warrior. No real other reason.

Would Mean A Huge Step Up

  • Hijo del Fantasma
  • Texano Jr. – the company seems high on both guys as future stars, but not enough to main event a Friday show with them now

Just Don’t Look Bad

  • Dragon Rojo Jr. – probably okay for this to be a short match
  • Mascara Dorada – though, if they have renewed confidence in him, could be fun to reintroduce him with a near miss

Matches Which Would Be Fun (if they got any time)*

  • Averno versus most of the tecnicos
  • Sombra too

* – they won’t. Or the rules will have been changed since they were announced and it’ll be a cibernetico.

AAA #887 (05/30)

taped 04/02/09, aired 05/30/09

This was weird. Obviously, they taped the inbetween promos and wouldn’t do that unless they planned on airing. Every other way the show aired, it didn’t seem like they planned on taping it. Maybe next time they tour the US, they might want to bring someone decent lighting, and perhaps some microphones for the ring so they don’t dub in the same kick/slap noise for every contact on the show. Ridiculously minor league.

On the other hand, I think they did a good job with the big angle for TripleMania. Having this format for the show allowed them to explain things better than it would’ve gone down on TV.

Fabi Apache, Octagoncito, Pimpinela Escarlata vs Decnnis, Mari Apache, Mini Abismo Negro – probably the best match? Decnnis is more interesting as a solo act.
Crazy Boy & Super Fly vs Jack Evans & Teddy Hart – turn taking! Kinda needed to explain the Sagrada bit, not surprised they didn’t.
La Parka Jr. ©, Marco Corleone, Vampiro vs Killer Clown, Psycho Clown ©, Zombie Clown – surprised about how clean this was in the end
Charly Manson & Cibernetico vs Joe Lider & Electroshock – I almost felt pity for sad Cibernetico and then he made Charly wrestle the whole match.
Mesias vs Ozz kick punch kick punch stomp chinlock kick punch punch punch

Sunday/Tuesday GDL results, lineups

Fuego en el Ring has relaunched their website, which meant my secret robot checking the site for new updates broke without me realizing it. Probably should fix that part of the robot.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve missed.

CMLL (SUN) 05/31 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Acertijo & Azazel b Thunder Boy & Virgo
2) Casanova & Nube Roja b Asesino Negro & Rafaga
3) Metal Blanco & Neutron b Mr. Trueno & Rey Trueno
4) Blue Panther, Maximo, Mictlan b Black Warrior, Dragon Rojo Jr., Sangre Azteca
5) La Sombra, Mistico, Volador Jr. b Felino, Mr. Niebla, Negro Casas

Now you know: Mr. Trueno is the Occidente Middleweight champ. Looking back thru the records, he must’ve defeated Metatron on the 12/30/08 show; no results ever turned up for that show. Neutron’s the one challenging (and soon), not the other way around. Henrik would be thrilled, if he was still here.

This was the show where Mistico did his “give me a bigger push or I’m doing home” interview; Fuego en el Ring has their own version, where Mistico notes he would not go to TNA, because they’re too small time for him. Awesome. Mistico is going to be a natural rudo someday.

CMLL (TUE) 06/02 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [Fuego en el Ring]
1) Milenio b Quazar
2) Hierro b Angel del Mal
3) Metatron b Infierno
4) Lluvia & Zeuxis b La Seductora & Magnifica
5) Dark Angel & Lady Apache b Amapola & Princesa Blanca
6) Terrible & Texano Jr. b Mictlan & Shocker [OCCIDENTE TAG]

Besides the title match fun, the story from the semimain is Lady Apache wants a title shot against…Princesa Blanca. That’s probably the way to go there.

We’ve also discovered, via hi5, that Zeuxis is the correct spelling for the new woman.

While I’m at it, and just noticed they’re up, here’s next week’s lineups:

You may also note their luchador section, freshly updated. In a lot of ways, they’ve got more info than the DF CMLL site.

CMLL (SUN) 06/07 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Molotov & Trueno vs Puma King & Tiger Kid
2) Marcela, Sahori, Zeuxis vs Hiroka, La Nazi, Magnifica
3) Mascara Dorada, Stuka Jr., Valiente vs Euforia, Nosferatu, Virus
4) Blue Panther, Shocker, Volador Jr. vs Atlantis, Dos Caras Jr., Ultimo Guerrero
5) Mistico vs Felino

Most of this was already posted, I think, but the main event is new. The 50th Anniversary of this building is coming up before the end of the month, and there’s been talk the last couple days CMLL might do Mistico vs Felino. I’ve not paid much mind to it, because there didn’t seem to be any build in that direction. That there is build to it, perhaps.

CMLL (TUE) 06/09 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Astaroth vs Skaxy
2) Idolo vs Angel del Mal
3) Exterminador vs Magnum
4) Casanova & Leon Blanco vs Asesino Negro & Dragon
5) Lady Apache, Marcela, Zeuxis vs Magnifica, Princesa Blanca, Princesa Sujei
6) Hector Garza & Maximo vs Dos Caras Jr. & Mephisto

The big issue here is I can’t figure out if Skaxy is supposed to be a rudo or tecnico. In things that actually matter, there’s more Blanca/Apache (and Zeuxis again), plus no Neutron or Mr. Trueno and they usually run 7 matches on Tuesdays. Hmmmm.

IWRG, GDL results, ByL

IWRG (SUN) 05/31 Arena Naucalpan [the Gladiatores]
1) Comando Negro b Sangre Latina
2) Exodia & Galactik b Latino & Mixteco Jr.
3) Avisman, Black Thunder, Tetsuya Bushi b Chico Che, Freelance, Turbo
4) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II b Angelico, Ricky Cruzz, Zatura
5) Black Terry, Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro b Fuerza Guerrera, Juventud Guerrera, Veneno

Dr. Cerebro snuck in a foul on Juvi for the final fall. The two teams made lots of challenges after the match.

CMLL (TUE) 06/02 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [SuperLuchas]
6) Terrible & Texano Jr. b Mictlan & Shocker [OCCIDENTE TAG]

Champions retained. Rudos pinned Shocker, but Mictlan managed to beat Texano Jr. He could’ve beat Terrible, but Texano helped him out and Terrible grabbed the ropes on a pin.

TripleMania will cost 219MP ($16.40 US). That’s not too bad. I might pay that much to have someone order it, set up a camera, and put in on justin.tv or wherever to guarantee I’d see it. (Of course, we might get that all for free.)

Rey Bucanero is vowing to unmask Ephesto when he returns. He’s disappointed about being out, losing his title, and losing out on the champions tournament.

A preview of that champs tournament talks Hijo de Fantasma, Hector Garza, and Negro Casas about their chances, credits Mistico with the wrong title.

In addition to Sandokan, Panamaian wrestlers Ventarron, Alma Negra, Chamaco Castro and el Idolo were all honored by the countries’ Institute of Sports.

The Gladiatores has a video interview with Hermano Muerte Jr..
